William at the Waterpark

One of the many great things about the hotel we are staying in is the waterpark. The children are having such a great time! We've taken at least a little time each day to swim, though some days have been so busy they've only gotten half an hour. However, Wednesday was our short day. We were free all day after lunch, so we stayed at the waterpark all day and into the evening. We got in bed pretty late, but I think the children all agree it was well worth it!

William has so much fun in the water! He loved the "big" waterslide in the adult pool and he had fun in the kiddie pool on the "little" slide, too! And, as you can see, he had a great time playing water basketball with Michael! He loved making the ball go in the net and we all loved watching him be so proud of himself!

I'm thankful that this trip hasn't been all testing, but we've been able to enjoy the time with our children, too!

"Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth." I Chronicles 16:31


  1. Wow- what a cool hotel! At least there has been some fun among all the testing and hospital visits. William sure looks like he loves the water!

    Today is Fri. and I hope you do not have to stay another week. I also hope you get a clearer picture regarding the MRI. So glad there was "fun time". It sounds like the slide pool was a huge hit, and a great way to "relax and/or wind down" a bit. Everyone was deserving time away from "the schedule". I am so glad you were able to go to this facility but I am sure it has not been easy. And as a Mother, I must say, tears came to my eyes when you told the story about William starting to cry when you entered Mayo. He is such a wonderful child. So brave and yet so loving! He always does his very best and I am so proud of him! We can all take a lesson from William in courage! I hope your on your way home. If not, I hope the additional time at Mayo gives you all the needed answers.
    "The Lords Love is Great" comes to mind. You and your family are in my thoughts. Prayers abound.
    God Bless,
